Soul Sound System !!

You may remember The Freedom Sounds' first release, that I posted back in January. Well, here's the followup album. If you're a fan of The Jazz Crusaders/ Wayne Henderson, then you'll love this. It was cut for Atlantic Records by the nine-piece group put together by trombonist Wayne Henderson of the Jazz Crusaders. It was cut around the same time that Henderson appeared as part of Hugh Masekela's band at the Monterey International Pop Festival, and it comes from a similar multi-cultural, musical, multi-lingual sensibility. Enjoy!

  2. Another album I've seen on Atlantic inner sleeves since I was a kid but never came across. The sample I found on YouTube was REALLY nice. Looking forward to hear the whole album. Thanks as always.
